All About Balance

12 January 2016


These are the tempting treats I had to deal with in my kitchen all day yesterday (Emilia & I baked peanut butter brownies over the weekend and we got some pastries that morning just because....well, you know - it was Monday!). The pecan plaits are my favourite...they make the 9am workouts all the more worth it! I bought the glass jars from Ocado and I love them! Now I just need to find some chocolate chip cookies to fill the other one - I have a feeling this could be a slippery slope! 


My outfit was super cosy yesterday; I went for my Abercrombie chunky knit cream cardigan, matching J.Crew v-neck tee and my Ted Baker ripped jeans. I love this cardigan but sometimes struggle with deciding what to pair it with as it looks better with low necked tops like this one but lately it's been really cold! I think I need some more circle scarves...I think that would look cute! Let me know if you have any other ideas - I would love to hear what you think!

  1. The jeans look amazing on you, I definitely need to look into Ted Baker a bit more! I find it so hard not to eat snacks like that when they're in the kitchen, I don't know how you manage it!

  4. Oh Anna! I just posted a blog post asking for ideas on what I could store in my two huge glass jars that I recently got! Coincidence. All about that slippery slope... I thought that maybe cookies, or pasta. Too tempting! haha!

  7. Your outfit is so cute! I just love your style! I think that when it comes to sweets moderation is definitely the key! Don't deprive, but don't overdo it. :)

  9. Anna, love this outfit! Circle scarves would look great too! And maybe just a lightweight one to offset the chunkiness of the sweater! Also any of your striped tops would look really nice too :)

  12. Well done for keeping your work out routine! I gained a lot of weight after my little one was born and you motivate me to get up and do something about it. You always look so good and you are right a circle scarf would look great for that outfit, I'm my opinion either dark blue or something neutral.

  13. I think circle scarfs / infinity scarfs are the best match for cardigans :D they would look so nice on you :*

  17. Just started my working out last week and I am in love with already. I am sure it couldn't be working already, but I feel that it is so that's all that counts. I definitely wouldn't have started if wasn't for yourself and Lucy Anna, and looking at your amazing results. I think you look better now than you ever have. Hopefully I will be able to wear t.shirts this summer, I am 54 so not even going as far as thinking about a bikini, but you never know! haha Love your outfit and all of your videos. Thanks for introducing me to Lucy!! her videos are amazing, maybe this is my year to get fit:) love and hugs xx

  21. Love the outfit. Looks super cozy but still stylish. I just started going HIIT this week! I have two babies, 2.5 and 6 months, and I am back below my pre-pregnancy weight (nursing) but my belly needs some SERIOUS toning! I love baking (and eating!) too and I love your blog for helping me keep motivated :)

  23. Sweets are seriously my achille's heel! I used to make a similar pecan pastry to yours and it was my favorite!

  24. My computer just crashed and I don't know if my comment published😔 I think a slogan T shirt like your whistles one would be nice or a plain white chic T with your diesel khaki trousers, sorry if this posted twice! Thanks for all your positivity Anna as always😊

  28. Anna, congrats for your teeth: I see'em very nice and improved smile!

  29. Anna, you look so amazing! I have always been a fan of your sense of style and have followed your youtube channel and your blog, but I must say that you have been glowing so much and looking so happy!
    One thing that I love about you is how you have gotten fit, I lack the motivation, I just can't work out! And now I weigh 56kg, which is way too much for someone my height, and I eat all kinds of crap in college.. :(

    Have a nice day, Anna :)

  31. Hey Anna! I have been reading your blog/watching your videos for years but I have never actually commented. I have three girls ages 3.5 years, 2years and 6months. I am a similar age as you and am also married to a guy a few years older than myself so I feel like I have so much in common.
    I'm sure you get these kinds of comments all the time but I love watching your videos and you have encouraged me to start working out again after my 3rd baby! :) I know you said in 2016 you want to post what YOU want to post, which I think is so great! But I hope you like posting about fitness, because those videos are so encouraging! Cheers, Rachel

  38. I've been watching your Vlogs and they are motivating me to want to work out ... I had my little girl 14 weeks ago and I've still got the "baby hang" as I am calling it and it's really getting me down now so I really need to get rid of it. Great post you look amazing :) xx
